ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the suspension.

Schefter reported Peterson's suspension will cost him almost $4 million.

Peterson failed to show up for the Cardinals' voluntary workouts last month because he was upset with the decisions being made by the team's front office, according to ESPN.

And, despite the repeated trade rumors and the suspension, Peterson insisted that his relationship with general manager Steve Keim and the Cardinals organization is in a good place.

In 2018, Peterson tallied 54 tackles with five passes defensed and two picks.

Peterson will miss games against the Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals and Atlanta Falcons.

Pompeo and Lavrov, who appeared at ease with other, were to brief President Vladimir Putin on the meeting in the evening. Putin told Pompeo his recent telephone conversation with Trump raised hopes for an improvement in relations.

His anticipated return would be against the New York Giants on the road for Week 7. The fifth overall pick of the 2011 draft, he has 23 career interceptions despite teams rarely testing him.

Speculation on social media and talk radio was rampant that Peterson wanted a trade this offseason and the Chiefs might be interesting in adding the eight-time Pro Bowler to their revamped defense. There is one theory that could suggest why Peterson earned six games instead of four. Green called Peterson the best cornerback in the league.

Peterson, who is one of just 13 players to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first eight National Football League seasons, has started all 128 games since being drafted by the Cardinals in 2011.

Gambadoro added that Peterson believed he could have saved $2 million or more with a restuctured contract, which also added to his dissatisfaction.

There is little doubt that Murphy, who Arizona had a top-five grade on heading into the NFL Draft, will at least get regular run in nickel packages.
